NEW YORK -- The Utah Jazz have won a tiebreaker with the Boston Celtics, giving them a chance for a better pick in the NBA draft.

Both teams finished with 25-57 records. The Jazz will now be slotted fourth in the lottery, with a 10.4 per cent chance at the No. 1 pick, while the Celtics will have a 10.3 per cent chance. If they or no teams behind them move up, Utah will pick No. 4 and Boston at No. 5.

Boston also will have the No. 17 pick after a tie was broken between Brooklyn and Washington, both 44-38. The Nets owe the pick to the Celtics from last summer's trade that landed them Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.

Chicago (48-34) won a tiebreaker with Toronto at No. 19.

The ties were broken Friday through random drawings.
